Cool Maths for Cool Kids
Welcome to Cool Maths for Cool Kids – a series all about making mathematics fun and showing that maths is part of our everyday life.
For the full month of July we will be bringing you lots of new ideas, some old favourites and some quirky ones too! All for free so follow the links, join in and share the fun!
We hope to show you how we all teach and learn maths through a variety of ideas and methods that we will be sharing during the month. We will be covering simple mathematical ideas to more complex ones depending on a range of ages and abilities.
As this is a global series with participants from all over the world, there will be different methods that are generally used in schools or by homeschoolers. If you do see a term that you have not seen before please do ask and I am sure we will be able to help! You may also see maths referred to as Mathematics, Math or Maths depending on where in the world the post has come from!
Finally our main aim is to show both grown ups and kids that maths is not only fun but can be embraced with enthusiasm and excitement whether you are a little kid or a big kid!

Patterns & 2D/3D Shapes
Time & Money
